Whatever the reason for that mysterious move by the New England coaching staff, it did not pan out as the Patriots allowed 373 passing yards and three touchdowns to Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in his Super Bowl MVP-winning performance.
The line "I'm sure he feels like he could have helped" also sounds like a direct shot at Butler. We don't know whether he was benched for football reasons, as Bill Belichick stated, or for disciplinary reasons, as many people are speculating.
The Hoodie typically outwits, out-coaches and outlasts opponents with frightening precision, but his curious choice to sit the guy who had played more defensive snaps than anyone on his roster this season (97.8%, in case you were wondering) loomed large in New England's 41-33 loss to the Eagles Sunday night. Former Patriot cornerback Brandon Browner ripped the move in an Instagram post after the game, which was subsequently liked by current Patriot Dont'a Hightower. "I don't know how to feel watching that (expletive) without watching my homie Malcolm playing".

Responding to the question of the TDP MPs threatening to resign, he said , "We never said that, it is all speculation". Reportedly , Naidu is holding an emergency meeting on Sunday to rethink the party's alliance with the saffron party.
Rowe admitted post-game that he only knew he was starting over Butler right before the game began.
If you're going to go down, you may as well at least go down with your best players on the field. "They deserve that [loss] for not playing Malcolm". Aside from a hiccup in the first quarter, Philadelphia didn't let the Patriots back into the game. "I don't know. That's how the game goes sometimes".
Patriots defensive co-ordinator Matt Patricia, who is expected to become the Lions' head coach, told reporters that his team was simply "trying to run some packages", which apparently didn't happen to include Butler.

I always tried to work as hard as I could to be a good father and now I know what one of the reasons were, the main reason. Margraves' daughters' hands flew to their mouths, and one of Nassar's lawyers moved to shield his client.
"No, that wasn't the plan", Rowe said.
As long as nobody gets any solid answers, Bill Belichick will forever face questions for his decision to leave Malcolm Butler on the sidelines in Super Bowl LII. "That's tough. He's a hell of a player".
Butler saw some playing time on special teams, but that was the extent of his playing time as Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe and Johnson Bademosi saw almost all the playing time at corner for the Patriots. "I'm sure the players felt the same way. It is what it is", Butler told ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.
